PDF Combiner-Merge Multiple PDFs into One Without Adobe Acrobat
In many cases, we need to merge multiple PDF files into one PDF document to consolidate multiple files and better organize our material. The powerful Adobe acrobat can solve this problem easily. However, Adobe Acrobat is a ridiculously expensive piece of software and I’ve tried a lot of the more affordable and free PDF software, finally, I found an excellent alternative tool to merge multiple PDFs into one – PDF Combiner.
There are four advantages of this PDF Combiner:
1. Extremely easy-to-use interface
Below is the screenshot of PDF Combiner. Compare with the complex Adobe Acrobat, the main interface of PDF Combiner is so clear that everyone can use it to merge PDFs immediately without any help tips. Just need 3 clicks, you can merge single PDFs into one in seconds: import PDF file>Choose the output>Click Merge!
2. Support combining encrypted PDF files
If the PDF files you want to merge is protected by owner password (the password protected from copying, printing, and editing), don’t worry, PDF Combiner will remove the password and combine multiple PDFs into one directly.
Another situation is, if the PDF files are protected by user password (the password protected from opening). PDF Combiner will require you enter the password and then can merge single PDFs into one.
3. Multiple merging methods satisfy your different requirements and save you time
This is the most important reason why I choose this PDF Combiner: I can choose the suitable merging methods according to my needs.
1） Select page range
In this area, you can set the pages you want to merge easily. There are four check boxes to choose: All, Odd, Even, and Part.
“All” is the default merging method and used commonly; “Odd” and “Even” are very useful in many situations. Take me as an example, I have a PDF, the first page is English, the second page is the Chinese version of Page 1, and the follow pages are such like this. I want to extract English version of the PDF. I use the “Odd” method and the problem is solved quickly. PDF Combiner merges all the odd pages into one PDF in seconds! If the page you want to merge is not regular, it doesn’t matter, “Part” method can help you! Enter the pages you want to merge, e.g.: 1, 2, 7, 19-30, PDF Combiner will merge the pages you needed.
2) Select page sort
In this area, you can choose the page sort you need to merge: Sequence and Reverse.
3) Merge all files alternatively
There is an optional check box “Merge all files alternatively”. You can choose “Mix pages by every N pages” or “Repeat”. The option is useful when you want to mix the pages of multiple PDF files together.
